Is the site being scanned?
 
Not really sure if that's the right way to phrase it. I'm just looking at the numbers on my blog entries. I went from the 2-300 views range to 5-600 range in what feels like a couple of weeks. Now I'd like to believe that I'm that popular of a blogger, but sadly I'm a little too realistic to swallow that. Don't know if you maintain detail on unique visits, but I'd be interested to know what's going on.

Who the hell found this photo of me?

Without knowing where those views are coming from it's a bit harder to say, but as the southern hemispheres season is about to go into overdrive I would speculate they're coming from down there.

Pretty sure it was "I'll type this in all CAPS and show them"

Most likely answer is it's a search engine bot indexing pages or ad related bot/program crawling through web pages and artificially inflating the number of visits to your blogs.

The sudden inflation can be any number of things such as a change in the site's SEO structure making your blogs more visited by crawlers. I'd imagine snowboardingforum gets crawled by search engine bots a lot since it ranks highly for a lot of random snowboard terms.

Either that or you really do have a stalker :p
